Still kind of figuring that out. Definitely firmly in "rock" although I couldn't give you a precise subgenre.

At this stage, the working song titles are things like "Please Whalers Don't Hurt 'Em" so I don't think that'd be particularly useful.

Anyway, I posted mostly as a laugh while the other guys and I were sitting around going through our Facebook friends lists trying to come up with a suitable candidate that wasn't too busy with other bands and might actually show up when they said they would. But I'm in no way averse to actually finding someone through the Rag. I mean, I trust you guys sight unseen and without knowing most of you personally way more than I would some rube off craigslist.

Who does Sunday matinees? We went to Stockyards Brewery and saw some folk/bluegrass around 4. Also saw that Mad Kings were playing a matinee in Lawrence at 5.

Frenchmen St. in NO does Nickle Dances on Sunday afternoons in the fall and it's a big hit.

I'm thinking this is right up my alley. Anybody else doing this?

Matinees are a really good idea

I just heard about Stockyard on Sundays - I need to check that out.

Ollie's supposedly does music on Saturday afternoons.

Knuckleheads on Saturdays & Sundays - more of an open jam kind of thing, but fun.

Harling's used to on Saturdays back in the day. Not sure if they're even open anymore.

Knucks might work, paired with some Local Pig.

Saturdays just aren't the same. Something about Sunday afternoon, where your'e extending the weekend revelry, but still acknowledging the coming Monday.

I wish The Ship would change their Sunday night shows to late afternoon, particularly People's Liberation Big Band. I remember them having a monthly residence at Record Bar that was sort of early, maybe 6.

A long-running matinee in town is at the Holy Cow Market and Music at 31st and Cherry.
I was in attendance today, in fact, and saw Abandoned Bells. I spoke with an old acquaintance about matinees being more amenable to our current lifestyles than nightlife. So goes Gen X

Lets start compiling a year-end list. The best Kansas City record of the year is Umberto's 'Alienation.' Yes, Umberto now resides and records in LA. Anyone have any contributions?

The Conquerors' - "Wyld Time"
Tongues - Self Titled

There were a lot of good, small releases. It's hard to say what the "best" was.

I've been working on an album everyone will hate (assuming they bother to listen to it) but I'm not sure if it will be done by the end of the year.

From Lawrence but, Psychic Heat's "Sunshower" is a good one.

Unfortunately our world is a hierarchical one and I just need to contextualize my opinion for discussion. If I could give the children a world without rankings and lists and statistics, I would.

I hadn't heard these suggestions, that Conquerors song sounds radio-ready.
